- 11/01/12 - Paris Proves Inspirational for Strode Art and Design Students
A visit to Paris in December proved inspirational for Strode College art and design students who returned to college this week with plenty of new ideas for their 2012 college projects.
They took in many famous buildings, museums and cultural sites during their five day visit, including the Musee d'Orsay which houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces in the world, The Louvre which is the most visited art museum in the world, The House of European Photography, as well as Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower at night time, and a boat trip on the Seine.
Chris Loughran, Strode's Course Manager for the Extended Diploma in Art and Design, said: "This valuable and rewarding visit provided our students with an opportunity to experience original artworks and a wonderfully creative city first hand. Such visits invigorate our students' coursework and we expect to see reference to Paris in their End of Year show this summer."
The 37 students who visited Paris are currently studying Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design Year 2, Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, and A Level Photography.
